Presented by Scott Conwell, FAIA, FCSI, LEED AP, director of industry development, International Masonry Institute, Bowie, MD

Join us as we unveil some of the recent trends and changes in tile design. We’ll address design and installation requirements for both conventional and large format tile, including substrate preparation and floor flatness standards. Attendees will also develop an understanding of the various types of tile, setting methods, system components, as well as quality assurance methods as outlined in the ANSI A108 standards and the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) Handbook. Furthermore, our session will examine ANSI requirements for mortar coverage, grout joint width, allowable lippage, layout and bonding, as well as other aesthetic and functional criteria. Our program will also look at the new standards for thin Gauged Porcelain Tile (GPT) panels, as well as the recommended specification language for installer qualifications appearing in the TCNA Handbook and MasterSpec.
